To make this product, they take George Dickel Tennessee Whisky and add that to barrels which aged Tabasco peppers for three years where it rests for 30 days. If that weren't spicy enough for you, they then take TABASCO Brand Pepper Sauce and distill it to make an essence. That essence is then blended into the barrel-rested whisky. Bottled at 70 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Whiskey is great. Tabasco is also great. But unlike Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, this is an example of two great tastes that DO NOT taste great together. As expected (and if you've purchased it, desired) Tabasco dominates the senses here both on the nose and the palate. What the whiskey brings to the party is caramel and vanilla sweetness which when combined with the Tabasco flavor is very off-putting. The brand suggests to consume as a shot. If you must, make sure you have a cold beer to wash it all down. "
